Trocaz Pigeon (Columba trocaz): Endemic to Madeira. It is a scarce resident breeder in caves and on mountains in the laurel forest zone, where 10,000 birds remain. At 42-45 cm, it looks like a large Wood Pigeon. It is a basically grey bird, with a pinkish breast. It lacks any white markings, which together with a silvery neck patch distinguishes it from the other species of Columba. Breeds in caves, laying one white egg in a nest on a ledge. Its flight is quick, performed by regular beats, with an occasional sharp flick of the wings, characteristic of pigeons in general. It takes off with a loud clattering. The call is a characteristic cooing doo-doh, like Wood Pigeon.
